Google Integration

World Book Online works with G Suite for education! There is no set up required on the customer end, simply send us your G Suite domain(s) and we will establish the connection. This integration allows students to sign in to World Book with their Google credentials. Signing in with Google automatically logs them in to a personal My World Book Account and allows students to use features like My Research, save to Timelines, and use our save and share features for Google Drive and Google Classroom.

Note: If the entire district is not part of the World Book Online subscription, users must provide domains for the individual institutions under the account subscription.


Integration instructions

Integration is simple! Follow the steps below to get started:

  1. Email slhelp@worldbookonline.com with your account name, a request to integrate with Google, and provide your G Suite domain or domains.
